Chikukwa’s knowledge of World War II began when he was a child in Rhodesia – as Zimbabwe then was called – and learnt about his father’s contribution.
Aged seven, he remembers Rhodesian policemen coming to look for the gun which was his father’s legacy of the war. (They never found it.)
He says the exhibition will give the veterans "a chance to speak for themselves – they all have different stories to tell".
